Dying Native American languages set for funding boost from US Senate


The long-term survival of 148 indigenous languages spoken by people living in North America before the European invasion starting in 1492 may be getting a boost from the US Senate, after a new bill was passed unanimously by the Indian Affairs committee.

If the Esther Martinez Native American Languages Preservation Act passes the full Congress and receives President Barack Obama's signature, it will help prevent the predicted death of the languages within the next 100 years.
